- What are the benefits of a lozenge?
Wellness Zinc Lozenges™ feature zinc in the form of gluconate, the most efficient, non-binding form. It also includes ascorbate. This formula allows for up to 90 percent of free-form zinc ions from gluconate to be released in the mouth and throat. It is then available for action within the bloodstream.
- Are there other benefits?
Zinc can have an unpleasant metallic taste. Our lozenges have a pleasant peach-raspberry flavor that masks the taste of the natural zinc.
- How does this formula differ from others?
Other formulas may contain citric acid or mannitol-sorbitol sweetener mixtures, and as a result do not work nearly as well. That is because these compounds bind free zinc ions so tightly that very little of it is released into the oral cavity.
